Despite Disbursement of 70 Billion Naira, Senators Still Receive ‘Prayers/Money’ for Holiday”.

 

In a stunning revelation, Nigerian senators have reportedly received allocations of funds for the upcoming holiday season, despite the recent disbursement of a whopping 70 billion Naira.

The allocation comes on the heels of widespread criticism over the large sum of 70 billion Naira disbursed to federal lawmakers. This new revelation, characterized by some as ironic and insensitive, has further heightened public scrutiny of the legislators. The funds, which are meant to support their duties and responsibilities, have prompted discussions about fiscal responsibility, transparency, and the priorities of the Nigerian government.

Prominent opposition figure Timi Frank, a former member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), denounced the senators’ acceptance of the funds for their holiday plans. In a video statement, Frank lambasted the act as a “show of shame” and a “mockery of democracy”. He questioned the ethics of accepting additional allocations when many Nigerians continue to grapple with poverty and economic challenges.

“The show of shame that was demonstrated today on live national television where the senate under Akpabio was telling the whole world that they are going on vacation and the Clerk of the national assembly has paid money to every account of the Nigerian senators. This is the biggest joke we’ve seen recently,” Frank declared, urging the immediate resignation of Senate President Akpabio.
